Endocytosis can be separated into the categories of phagocytosis and pinocytosis. Phagocytosis can be distinguished from pinocytosis primarily by the size of particle ingested and by its dependence on actin polymerization as a key step in particle ingestion. Several specific forms of pinocytosis have been identified that can be distinguished based on their dependence on clathrin or caveolin. Both clathrin- and caveolin-dependent pinocytosis appear to require the participation of dynamin to… CONTINUE READING
